Retrieving a single data item from a table

I would like to runa  simple select statement:

BooksConnection.Execute "SELECT LineOfText FROM ImportCheck WHERE ProviderID = " & ProviderID & " AND LineNumber = " & Counter

This works. How do I place that one data item (LineOfText) into a variable so I can use it? Does it go into some default recordset? I am not getting an error and I use many SQL statements in my code now for Inserts and deletes

Thanks

dim rs as adodb.recordset

set rs = BooksConnection.Execute "SELECT LineOfText FROM ImportCheck WHERE ProviderID = " & ProviderID & " AND LineNumber = " & Counter

Do Until rs.EOF
  MyVar = rs!LineOfText
  rs.MoveNext
Loop

I tried this as wriiten and VB give me an error on the set rs = line. It says "Expected End of Statement" I simplified it to the most basic select statement and I still get this.

I have worked around it defining the record set and the select statement and using and rs.cursurlocation and an rs.open statement.

I would like to get it working the way wsh2 suggests if possible. It is much simpler and easier to read.  thanks

Simplke fix to the design time error message.. Change this statement

From:

set rs = BooksConnection.Execute "SELECT LineOfText FROM ImportCheck WHERE ProviderID = " & ProviderID & " AND LineNumber = " & Counter

To:

set rs = BooksConnection.Execute ("SELECT LineOfText FROM ImportCheck WHERE ProviderID = " & ProviderID & " AND LineNumber = " & Counter)

ie. just put parenthesis around your query).. <smile>.
